Professional Wine Reviews for Celler Vall Llach Priorat Embruix

Rated 88 by Robert Parker
The 2011 Embruix de Vall Llach is a blend of Carinena (28%), Garnacha (23%), Merlot (17%), Cabernet Sauvignon (18%) and Syrah(14%) and feels surprisingly fresher than the rest of the reds despite 2011 being a much warmer vintage than 2010, with a serious, dark nose of shoe polish, peat, nutmeg and ripe dark plums with some chemical character (diesel? Mineral?) and hints of flowers, Mediterranean herbs and spices. The palate is full-bodied, with ripe, balsamic flavors and plenty of tannin. The younger sibling is already a big wine. Drink 2014-2018.

Additional Information on Celler Vall Llach Priorat Embruix

Winery: Celler Vall Llach

Region: Cataluna

The beautiful Spanish wine region of Catalunya has a history of viticulture which stretches back for over a thousand years, and has been influenced by a wide range of people who moved through the region, and brought their wine making skills and expertise with them. The region itself is a sizeable one, covering an area of sixty thousand hectares, and within this space there resides over two hundred individual wineries, ranging from small, independent and traditional ones to the larger, mass production bodegas known around the world. The terroir of Catalunya is varied, and ranges from being dry and arid, to more lush and green in the wetter parts of the region which are closer to the coast. This variation in terroir results in a fantastic range of grape varietals being grown, and a wide range of wine styles are produced within Catalunya.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
